A surprise discovery on a boring hike reminds Mr. Sijpheer of our 2020-21 school theme ... that we were made to thrive.
In his weekly principal video for students, Mr. Sijpheer tells a story about a weekend hike he took just before school started this fall. Watch the video above.
At the end of his story he shares this message about the school year:
"We're going to experience some hard things," says Mr. Sijpheer. "COVID is still happening. There are lots of unknowns about that. Sometimes things might be frustrating or boring."
"But in order for us to thrive we need to endure and push through because we know something great is waiting for us. So no matter what happens this year, we are going to push through and put our hope in our great God. It's going to be a great year! We were meant to thrive!"
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him. -- Romans 15:13
